    mixing/stirring/shaking?

    i finally got my stuff and im now cutting the nic i have.

    my question is how should i go about mixing it when a bottle is full to the brim? i mean, i made a 30ml mixture (30ml bottle) and i dont feel like shaking it is doing much. idk. lesson learned in a way -- dont filll a bottle to the top? will all the liquids just fully blend by themselves if i let it steep? or should i get another bottle and just squirt between the two until i feel its blended 100%

    i made a second mixture at 20ml and can shake to my hearts content.

    Put bottle in microwave for 4-5 seconds. Shake it up��.
    Job done.

    Yep, don't overfill. If the ingredients have different specific gravities they need to be agitated to mix them.

    If you don't have room in the bottle to mix an RTV or doubler do it in two batches.

    Darth,
    Not all bottles contain 30mls !!
    To give you an example, the bottles that come with the "Big Mouth" concentrates from JF only contain about 27mls (and full to the absolute brim at 28mls). Always take note of which bottles actually do contain 30mls with breathing or shaking space at the top, and which bottles may contain 30mls but are absolutely full to the brim and which bottles contain less than 30ml although claimed otherwise. Take it as a learning experience.

    Whatever you do, don't be tempted to take any out (to make it fit) if it hasn't been properly shaken, I've tried that and been disappointed with the end vape. Fab is spot on and it's the easiest solution to tip it all into a bigger bottle or container in order to properly shake up and then divide into smaller bottles or leave in a bigger bottle.
    Cheers
    Sodd

    Pour it in a 50ml bottle, get your minions to shake it to their hearts content.

    Fill your bathroom sink with hot water and drop in there for an hour or 2. Will thin out your vg

    i forgot to mention that the taste is better day 4-5 than day 1. even after the bath and shake of death, the marrying still took 4-5 days to get a real good flavor.

    also, i was using half the recommended flavouring dose considering i was cutting rtv juice.

    Just remember to put the lids on, brake dust in your juice is not a good thing!

    Seriously though, microwaves are not good for juice, heat baths are unnecessary & car wheels are not ideal places to be storing bottles of juice even temporarily.
    All you really need is a small air bubble in the bottle to help mix the juice as you shake the bottle. If you have filled the bottle to the brim then invert it & let it sit upside down for a couple of minutes, this will get the heaviest liquid to the bottom which is usually the plain VG. After that you can drip a few drops out, if your nic is VG based it should still settle in a layer above the plain VG but if you have mixed the plain VG & the nic thoroughly, then you may lose a slight amount of nic too.
    The loss of a few drops of VG is not going to affect the taste at all but it will give you that air bubble you need to shake & mix
    The larger the air bubble the faster the mixing will be but if all you have is a small bubble, just shake for longer.
